"Sweetest Devotion" lyrics by Adele from 25

Written by Adele for her third studio album with Paul Epworth with who Adele won the Oscar for Best Song for Skyfall.

At first glance the song's title is a reference to Aerosmith's classic song Sweet Emotion, it's actually a love song to her child.

Sweetest Devotion lyrics


With your loving, there ain't nothing

That I can't adore

The way I'm running, with you, honey

Is we can break every low

I find it funny that you're the only

One I never looked for

There is something in your loving

That tears down my walls


I wasn't ready then; I'm ready now

I'm heading straight for you

You will only be eternally

The one that I belong to


The sweetest devotion

Hitting me like an explosion

All of my life, I've been frozen

The sweetest devotion I've known


I'll forever be whatever you want me to be

I'll go under and all over for your clarity

When you wonder if I'm gonna lose my way home

Just remember, that come whatever, I'll be yours all alone


I wasn't ready then; I'm ready now

I'm heading straight for you

You will only be eternally

The one that I belong to


The sweetest devotion

Hitting me like an explosion

All of my life, I've been frozen

The sweetest devotion I've known


I've been looking for you, baby

In every face that I've ever known

And there is something 'bout the way you love me

That finally feels like home

All my life, you're my darkness

You're the right kind of madness

And you're my hope, you're my despair

You're my scope, everything, everywhere


The sweetest devotion

Hitting me like an explosion

All of my life, I've been frozen

The sweetest devotion I've known



Sweetest

It's the sweetest

Sweetest

It's the sweetest

Sweetest

It's the sweetest

Sweetest

It's the sweetest

Devotion

"All I Ask" lyrics by Adele from 25

"All I Ask" lyrics by Adele from 25

'All I ask' is a song from Adele's third album 25. Propelled by songs like Hello and "When We Were Young", 25 was a mega selling album, the biggest of 2015.

Lyric:

I will leave my heart at the door

I won't say a word

They've all been said before

So why don't we just play pretend

Like we're not scared of what's coming next

Or scared of having nothing left


Now, don't get me wrong

I know there is no tomorrow

All I ask is


If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I'm more than just a friend

Give me a memory I can use

Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do

It matters how this ends

Cause what if I never love again?



I don't need your honesty

It's already in your eyes and I'm sure my eyes, they speak for me

No one knows me like you do

And since you're the only one that matters, tell me who do I run to?


Now, don't get me wrong

I know there is no tomorrow

All I ask is


If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I'm more than just a friend

Give me a memory I can use

Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do

It matters how this ends

Cause what if I never love again?


Let this be our lesson in love

Let this be the way we remember us

I don't wanna be cruel or vicious

And I ain't asking for forgiveness

All I ask is...


If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I'm more than just a friend

Give me a memory I can use

Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do

It matters how this ends

Cause what if I never love again?

"Million Years Ago" lyrics by Adele from 25

"Million Years Ago" lyrics by Adele from 25

I only wanted to have fun
Learning to fly, learning to run
I let my heart decide the way
When I was young
Deep down I must have always known
That is would be inevitable
To earn my stripes I'd have to pay
And bear my soul

I know I'm not the only one
Who regrets the things they've done
Sometimes I just feel it's only me
Who never became who they thought they'd be
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky, not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air, I miss my friends
I miss my mother; I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago

When I walk around all of the streets
Where I grew up and found my feet
They can't look me in the eye
It's like they're scared of me
I try to think of things to say
Like a joke or a memory
But they don't recognize me now
In the light of day

I know I'm not the only one
Who regrets the things they've done
Sometimes I just feel it's only me
Who never became who they thought they'd be
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky, not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air, I miss my friends
I miss my mother, I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago
A million years ago

"Love in the Dark" lyrics by Adele from the 25 album

"Love in the Dark" lyrics by Adele from the 25 album

Take your eyes off me so I can leave
I'm far too ashamed to do it with you watching me
This is never ending, we have been here before
But I can't stay this time cause I don't love you anymore
Please stay where you are
Don't come any closer
Don't try to change my mind
I'm being cruel to be kind

I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we're already defeated
Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me

You have given me something I can't live without
You mustn't underestimate that when you are in doubt
But I don't want to carry on like everything is fine
The longer we ignore it all the more that we will fight
Please don't fall apart
I can't face your breaking heart
I'm trying to be brave
Stop asking me to stay

I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we're already defeated
Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changing

We're not the only ones
I don't regret a thing
Every word I've said
You know I'll always mean
It is the world to mean
That you are in my life
But I want to live
And not just survive

That's why I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Maybe we're already defeated
Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me
I don't think you can save me

River Lea lyrics by Adele from 25

River Lea lyrics by Adele from 25

Lyrics

Everybody tells me it's 'bout time that I moved on

And I need to learn to lighten up and learn how to be young

But my heart is a valley, it's so shallow and man made

I'm scared to death if I let you in that you'll see I'm just a fake

Sometimes I feel lonely in the arms of your touch

But I know that's just me cause nothing ever is enough

When I was a child I grew up by the River Lea

There was something in the water, now that something's in me

Oh I can't go back, but the reeds are growing out of my fingertips

I can't go back to the river


But it's in my roots, it's in my veins

It's in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain

But it's in my roots, it's in my veins

It's in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain


So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea

Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea


I should probably tell you now before it's way too late

That I never meant to hurt you or lie straight to your face

Consider this my apology, I know it's years in advance

But I'd rather say it now in case I never get the chance

No I can't go back, but the reeds are growing out of my fingertips

I can't go back to the river

But it's in my roots, it's in my veins

It's in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain

It's in my roots, it's in my veins

It's in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain


So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea

Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea

So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea

Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea


River Lea, River Lea

River Lea, River Lea

River Lea, River Lea

River Lea, River Lea

The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea

The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea

The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea

The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea

"Water Under the Bridge" lyrics by Adele

"Water Under the Bridge" lyrics by Adele

Taken from Adele's third album, Water Under the Bridge is a song that features a lyric wish that the singer's love is not washed away, like water under the bridge.

Lyrics

If you're not the one for me
Then how come I can bring you to your knees?
If you're not the one for me
Why do I hate the idea of being free?
And if I'm not the one for you
You've gotta stop holding me the way you do
Oh and if I'm not the one for you
Why have we been through what we have been through?

It's so cold out here in your wilderness
I want you to be my keeper
But not if you are so reckless

If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
Woaah, woaaah
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

See you are water under the bridge
What are you waiting for?
You never seem to make it through the door
And who are you hiding from?
It ain't no life to live like you're on the run
Have I ever asked for much?
The only thing that I want is your love

If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
Woaah, woaaah
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

It's so cold in your wilderness
I want you to be my keeper
But not if you are so reckless

If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
If you're gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge

Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

"Remedy" lyrics by Adele from the 25 album

adele still shot from Hello video
Adele is your remedy....
"Remedy" lyrics by Adele from her third album 25.

Remedy was originally developed by Adele in a recording session with Ryan Tedder, who is well known as a producer and front man for band One Republic.

Remedy's song lyrics are a reflection on her relationship with her best friend, her grandparents, her son and father of her son.

After some false starts in the recording process of 24, Adele was excited by the Remedy and believed she was finally creating music that she liked and felt confident about.

Lyrics to Remedy, written by Adele and Ryan Tedder.

I remember all of the things that I thought I wanted to be
So desperate to find a way out of my world and finally breathe
Right before my eyes I saw, my heart it came to life
This ain't easy, it's not meant to be
Every story has its scars

But when the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy
Ohhh, ohhh

No river is too wide or too deep for me to swim to you
Come whenever I'll be the shelter that won't let the rain come through
Your love, it is my truth
And I will always love you
Love you, love you

But when the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy
Ohhh, ohhh

"When We Were Young" lyrics by Adele


"When We Were Young" lyrics by Adele from the 25 album.

The second single released from the album 25, following the world wide million plus seller, Hello. Not to be confused as a cover of The Killers, "When you were young", Adele's song is a reflection of a past time in her life being raised in consideration of a current moment. 

Lyrics

Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk
To the way you move
Everybody here is watching you
Cause you feel like home
You're like a dream come true
But if by chance you're here alone
Can I have a moment
Before I go?
Cause I've been by myself all night long
Hoping you're someone I used to know

You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

I was so scared to face my fears
Cause nobody told me that you'd be here
And I swore you moved overseas
That's what you said, when you left me

You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

It's hard to win me back
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn't gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care?

It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
I'm so mad I'm getting old
It makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young

"I Miss You" lyrics by Adele from 25

"I Miss You"  lyrics by Adele from 25

Lyrics

I want every single piece of you
I want your heaven and your oceans too
Treat me soft but touch me cruel
I wanna teach you things you never knew, ooh baby
Bring the floor up to my knees
Let me fall into your gravity
And kiss me back to life to see
Your body standing over me

[Pre-Chorus]
Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Down, down, down

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light

I love the way your body moves
Towards me from across the room
Brushing past my every groove
No one has me like you do
Baby you bring your heart, I'll bring my soul
But be delicate with my ego
I wanna step into your great unknown
With you and me setting the tone

Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Down, down, down

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light

We play so dirty in the dark
Cause we are living worlds apart
It only makes it harder baby
It only makes it harder baby
Harder baby, harder baby

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don't let go, baby give me light


I miss you, I miss you x 4

"Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" lyrics by Adele

"Send My Love (To Your New Lover)"  lyrics by Adele

The second track from Adele's third studio album

Lyrics

This was all you, none of it me
You put your hands on, on over my body and told me
You told me you were ready
For the big one, for the big jump
I'd be your last love everlasting, you and me
Mmm, that was what you told me

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free, oh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

I was too strong, you were trembling
You couldn't handle the hot heat rising (rising)
Mmm, baby I'm so rising
I was running, you were walking
You couldn't keep up, you were falling down (down)
Mmm, there's only one way down

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free, oh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready
If you're ready, I am ready
If you're ready, if you're ready
We both know we ain't kids no more
No, we ain't kids no more

I'm giving you up
I've forgiven it all
You set me free, oh

Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
Send my love to your new lover
Treat her better
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, are you ready? (Treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more
If you're ready, if you're ready (Send my love to your new lover)
If you're ready, are you ready? (Treat her better)
We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts
We both know we ain't kids no more

Hello lyrics by Adele from 25.

Hello, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time's supposed to heal ya, but I ain't done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?
I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There's such a difference between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart
Anymore

Hello, how are you?
It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry
I hope that you're well
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

It's no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

So hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, ooooohh
Anymore, anymore

Hello from the other side
I must've called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart
Anymore
